I'll take you back to October; the travel up was great! Callum's brother came down and helped us drive back. One 26ft Uhaul with trailer carrying our car and our other car driving in convoy. We broke up the drive over five days.
Day one saw not one, but two flat tires. Luckily it happened when we were parking the Uhaul at the hotel in the evening.
Day two was a long day of driving but all were in good spirits and Callum's brother was a demon with the Uhaul! A demon in a good way...he left 15 minutes before us and we never caught up to him!
Day three we took out the brand new Nintendo DS...it was a quiet day.
Day four; Freeport...need I say more?!? -although when shopping Freeport do not go with 3 males!
Day five was the home stretch! We stayed the night before in Houlton, ME so that we would be fresh for the border crossing. All paperwork was in order, plus copies of everything just in case! Stopped on the US side to deal with the cars (one is Canadian the other American). That took about 15 minutes.
Then on to the Canadian side...lots of paperwork but we had everything that was needed. Finished in about 20-30 minutes then the Customs person smiles at us and says, "Welcome back!". That was it, we were done. They didn't even look in the cars let alone open the truck. Callum was mad! All that strategical packing...
Walking back to the cars;
Callum: "Well, we're Canadian again!"
Geordie: "I don't like Canadians."
An hour later he was back to being happy about being Canadian!
Now he is loving it!! First day of skiing, after one lesson he was ready for the big hill;
...although once in a while he will remind us that when he's 18 he is moving back to Georgia.
